This flashy tropical-themed restaurant serves Thai-inspired European fusion cuisine - something that wouldn't be out of place at an adventurous Mediterranean restaurant inside an upscale Phuket resort hotel. Dishes like shrimp lemongrass carbonara and tom yang kung-style bouillabaisse share the bill with more European-sounding fare like grilled Norway salmon in red wine sauce and beef poele in blue-cheese sauce.
The multi-level dining space is done up in a pastiche of Colonial-tropical design elements - a dark-wood veranda level with lots of plants and bamboo screens, a Chinois-themed bar setup, and lounge-style sofa areas, with the gurgling sounds of splashing fountains and New Age music in the background throughout. There are impressive city views facing both north and south, and a bright, cheerful atmosphere during lunch service on sunny days.
Lunchtime options include curries, pastas, and meat- and fish-based plates (all Y1000) or an impressive four-course prix-fixe menu for Y2000. Budget around Y5000 at dinnertime for food and a few drinks. Lunch is served until 3pm, with cafe service from 3-6pm (drinks and desserts) and dinner from 6pm.
